Introducing ConnecTeen Corner: the peer support podcast!

Do you feel like you can’t talk to anyone about your mental health? ConnecTeen Corner is a project launched by ConnecTeen volunteers. We created this with the intent of having open and casual discussions about topics regarding mental health.

We hope to contribute to the destigmatization of such topics. Join us as we dive into the world of mental health and talk about things like anxiety, coping strategies and mental well-being from a youth perspective.

ConnecTeen is a confidential peer support service for youth in Calgary and area. We are a program of Distress Centre Calgary.

The first two episodes are live now!

Episode 1: Introduction

Not sure who or what ConnecTeen is? Look no further, take a listen to our Introduction Podcast to get an understanding of what ConnecTeen is.

Episode 2: Navigating Relationships

Relationships are an integral part of our lives. We all want to be in good relationships whether that be with friends or family but sometimes that’s not the case. In this episode we talk about understanding expectations and boundaries and how to navigate them. We also answer a common question “how do I make friends outside of school” and finally we talk about toxic friendships and what to do if you are stuck in one.

Listen to them now on Anchor or Spotify!
